Summary: I had received limbo as a gift on steam from a friend who had said he 'instantly thought of me' when he saw it. I fell in love with this game so much I wanted to own it, so when I found out there was a special edition I jumped at the chance! There are many reviews for the game itself so I thought I would do the goodies in this instead... So many great goodies in this one. ARTCARDS: The thing that first drew me to this game was the art. These cards do not disappoint.
I only have the standard edition, but even that is well worth your money

Summary: Disclaimer to start: I only have the standard edition of the game. None of these lovely-looking add-ins. So as far as my review is concerned: the game alone is worth your money. The art style is lovely, the story (as it were) is engaging without being disruptive, or seeming divided from the game. It is effective and interesting because it is relayed in what you're doing in the game, and with subtle clues. The whole game is like that.
Summary: This is a great special edition set. Be warned: Mine was shipped naked in a thin bubble mailer. The corners got crushed in transit. I tried to get a replacement but Amazon only offered a 10% refund. Now I have a $23 crushed special edition copy of Limbo. Yay.
Summary: this game is so unlike everything out there. the simplicity is what the allure is. both my husband and son are intrigued. Many a night spent on our PC trying to win. The graphics are stunning. they draw you in. Haven't come to the end yet, that's part of the draw.
Summary: When Limbo first came out for the 360, it was one of those games that kept me glued to my couch for hours on end. The almost silent game with its creepy, yet beautiful atmosphere, was a hit at E3 and a long waited tittle, until its release. It delivered and kept me playing. Now the Special Edition for PC & MAC is here and I'm happy to inform you that it is still the same great game.
Summary: Limbo is a game which changes the view of the player. Played in black and white , it toys with a players emotions. The story is great, and it is hard to get at first but anyone should be able to pick it up by the end of the game. The puzzles really make you think, and it is a "die and try again" game. This package is very nice, and has a special "3d" mode to use with the glasses.
Summary: Limbo is a remarkable experience that any game fan should experience. "The boy" is a nearly fearless protagonist that runs straight into a world of darkness to save his sister. The game is a puzzle based platformer that always changes and makes you think about even the simple things for a solution.
Summary: When I first played limbo, I wasn't expecting much. Oh, another indie game. Boy I was wrong. In addition to the game, that I would gladly pay $60 for, the special edition gives you all of the extra stuff for only $15 more! Limbo is on my top 3 list of all time games, right next to journey and Flower. There is nothing that can describe the awesome game that is Limbo. Seriously though, If you are thinking about buying it, buy it.You will not regret it.
